The segmentation gene, giant, is located in 3A1 within a cloned chromosome region surrounding the zeste locus. Rearrangement breakpoints associated with giant mutations were localized on the genomic clone map, and nearby transcription units were identified. One transcription unit is active during early embryogenesis and its transcripts are spatially localized from blastoderm into extended germband stages, consistent with expected expression patterns predicted by the 'gap' phenotype of giant… CONTINUE READING
